  1. This is startlingly apt.

  4. Why, hello~! Fancy meeting you here!

  5. [quote name='Allamorph'][FONT=Calibri]This concept makes no sense. [/FONT][/QUOTE][size=1]I don't know, it makes sense to me. Go on dates, have fun, eat ice cream outside and give sweet/awkward goodbye kisses on the front porch. You don't have to find (or think that you've found) long-term, "true love" type relationships to enjoy that.[/size]
  6. [quote name='Shy'][kuja]Me too. LOL! ;)[/kuja][/QUOTE][size=1]Way too much punctuation in this post.[/size]
  7. [quote name='Shy'][size=1]I'll check out Urban Outfitters. I bought my brother a camera with a fish eye lens from UO a few Christmases ago, and his major complaint was that film was really expensive and hard to find. You could get the cameras pretty easily, but once you used up the film that came with it you were in trouble.age cameras as decor around our apartment. The Brownie makes a pretty bitchin' bookend, if I do say so myself. -Shy[/size][/QUOTE][size=1]Hm, what kind of camera? I'm guessing it took 120 film? You can jury-rig a lot of spool film cameras to use 35mm film. I've done it once or twice with my [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diana_camera]Diana[/url], but can't vouch for the results (as the film is still sitting somewhere, lost and undeveloped, in my apartment). There are [url=http://www.flickr.com/groups/sprocket_holes/]groups on Flickr (link) [/url]that can get you started, though.[/size]
  8. [quote name='Shy'][size=1]I've looked all over my little state and I haven't been able to find any. Most of the film would actually be expired by now, anyway, but if you want to pick up some 600 brand film for me and send it my way that would be awesome. You know I'm good for it. -Shy[/size][/QUOTE][size=1]I'll have a look around. Sometimes expired film works. (Sometimes it doesn't, and that's sad, but still kind of charming.) Also, I think I've seen 600 packfilm (maybe from The Impossible Project?) at Urban Outfitters. I wouldn't normally recommend shopping there, but again, maybe worth a shot? I was totally bummed when they announced that they'd stop making polaroid film. It's just to much fun, you know? Polaroid combines the instant gratification of digital with the wonderful tangibility of analog, and it's a shame that it's so hard to find film now. I've started using 35mm film, which is fun in theory, but. . . I've shot probably a dozen rolls in the last two years, and only had two of them developed. They get left in cameras and forgotten about, or the film canisters get lost in backpacks or boxes. I always poke around the camera sections of thift stores (the Savers by me has almost a whole shelf!), and the number of Polaroid cameras has skyrocketed in the last six months. I'd usually see one or two at a time, but I was there the other day and had to sift through almost a dozen of them, just to get to the other stuff.[/size]
  9. [quote name='Shy'][size=1]I'm still waiting on film. The Polaroid film for my specific brand of camera is sold out at the moment, but hopefully in the next month I can order some. -Shy[/size][/QUOTE][size=1]If that's actually the camera you have, it looks like it would take any old 600 packfilm that's still around. I still see it sometimes at Walmart/Walgreens/Target type places. It's about $15/pack here, but it might be more where you are (if there's any left). Worth taking a peek in some shady drugstores, though, if it'll let you take pictures before next month![/size]
  10. [quote name='chibi-master'][SIZE="4"][FONT="System"][COLOR="Magenta"]I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A BIT OF TIME FROM EVERYONE TO SHARE MY POEM ABOUT THE GREATNESS OF BOO.

    [quote name='Yann']With the colour flats I didn't notice but now with the completed image I'm wondering whether I should have made the flowers a different colour to cut down on the abundant blue/green in the image a bit. The character colours were all decided by the client but I had free reign over the background and environment, what do you think? [/quote][FONT="Georgia"]I agree with you there. A little dash of orange in the flowers would help pull this together into something a little strong than it is right now. It's neat to see the tone study, too.[/FONT]
  15. [quote name='Allamorph'][FONT=Calibri]There are new games and then there are remakes of older games. FireRed and LeafGreen were remakes of Red and Blue (respectively) for the Advance, and HeartGold and SoulSilver are the atrociously-named remakes of Gold and Silver (respectively) for DS. So technically they're [I]brand[/I] new, just not [I]new[/I].[/FONT][/QUOTE][FONT="Georgia"]Okay, that pretty much makes sense. Thanks for explaining! [/FONT]
